The Mission of Christ Community Church

Christ Community Church is a place where the lost are actively sought, won to Jesus and developed into Christ-like, church planting missionaries. – CCC Mission Statement

Our strategy to accomplish the church’s mission is made up of two parts: Our Process and Our Programs. The process we us is designed to help every attendee to pursue the five New Testament purposes in their lives. BELIEVE (worship), CONNECT (fellowship), GROW (discipleship), SERVE (ministry), and SHARE (evangelism). Each of our programs corresponds with a step within our process. Our programs only exist to support our process.

  1. BELIEVE (Weekend Worship Services)
    It is important that we demonstrate our love for God both privately and corporately through the act of worship in all areas of our lives. Our Sunday Services are designed to attract the un-churched to Jesus.
    Learn more about our Sunday services.
  2. CONNECT (Small Groups & Church Membership)
    As members of the Body of Christ we need to be in fellowship with other believers. It in this fellowship that we find accountability and support to grow in our faith. We accomplish this purpose by asking every member to belong to a small group.
    Learn more about joining a small group.
  3. GROW (Spiritual HABITS)
    It is important to the Christian walk that we continually grow in our knowledge and understanding of Christ. The more we study and meditate on the Word of God the we become like Him. We place high value on the bible as God’s Word. The primary places that we study God’s word at CCC are on Sunday mornings and in small groups.

  4. SERVE (Ministry Teams)
    Serving others in Jesus’ name is an important step in modeling Christ to those around us. After all He came to serve, not to be served. The primary avenues to serve at CCC are in small groups and on a Sunday morning team.

Statements of Faith

God the Father

God the Father is the Sovereign Designer and Ruler of the universe. He is the Source of all things and has eternally existed. He is co-equal with God the Son and God the Holy Spirit within the Triune Godhead.

Genesis 1:1, 26-27; 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; I Peter 1:2; II Corinthians 13:14

Jesus Christ – God the Son

Jesus Christ is God the Son. He is co-equal with the Father and the Holy Spirit. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He rose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again someday to earth to reign as King of king’s and Lord of lords.

Matthew 1:22-23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5, 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14-15; I Corinthians 15:3-4; Romans 1:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; I Timothy 6:14-15: Titus 2:13

God the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is co-equal with God the Father and God the Son. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer at least one spiritual gift when they are saved. As Christians we seek to live under His control daily.

II Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13, 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; I Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 5:18

The Bible

The Bible is God’s Word to us. It was written by men, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any mixture of error.

II Timothy 3:16 ; II Peter 1:20-21; II Timothy 1:13; Psalm 119:105, 160, 12:6; Proverbs 30:5

Human Beings

People were made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. People are the supreme object of God’s creation. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin”. This attitude separates people from God and causes many problems in life.

Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; Romans3:23; Isaiah 59:1-2

Salvation

Salvation is God’s free gift to us but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.

Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8, 9; John 14:6, 1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1

Eternal Security

Because God gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ, the true believer is secure in that salvation for eternity. If you have been genuinely saved, you cannot “lose” it. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives us this security.

John 10:29; II Timothy 1:12; Hebrews 7:25; 10:10, 14; I Peter 1:3-5

Eternity

People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. Heaven and Hell are real and literal places of eternal existence.

John 3:16; John 14:17; Romans 6:23; Romans 8:17-18; Revelation 20:15; I Cor. 2:7-9
